Jamie Dimon: “I was safer in Beirut”… Maybe Because of Those Gold Bullions JPMC Sent Iran?

The world’s richest drama queen complains he was safer in Beirut than being confronted by Occupy Wall Street.

For Jamie Dimon, the shelter of his Upper East Side mansion isn’t enough to keep him safe from the Occupy protesters. Instead, the JPMorgan Chase CEO said he felt safer halfway around the world that October day when protesters occupied the sidewalk outside his Manhattan home.

“That particular day, I was in Lebanon, Beirut doing business over there and I was probably safer over there too,” Dimon told Fox News.

Well, sure.

Dimon is the CEO of a company that materially supported Iran, Hezbollah’s sponsor.

Of course he was safe in Beirut.

I mean, maybe if he’d start sending $20M in gold bullion to Americans, like JPMC did for a bank in Iran, he’d feel safer here.

An apparent violation of the ITR consisting of a May 24, 2006 transfer of 32,000 ounces of gold bullion valued at approximately $20,560,000 to the benefit of a bank in Iran. JPMC did not voluntarily self-disclose this matter to OFAC.

But rather than sending gold bullion, JPMC is paying the cops that harass OWS.

Of course he’s safer where JPMC has paid off the terrorists rather than paid off the cops infringing on free speech.
